Other Things NYPD Cops Do

As someone who bikes almost daily in NYC, this one hits home:

A rookie NYPD cop was stripped of his badge and gun Monday after a stunning video caught him slamming a bicyclist to the ground in an apparent unprovoked attack.

Officer Patrick Pogan, 22, of the Midtown South Precinct, was bounced to desk duty soon after the video of Friday's incident in Times Square appeared on YouTube.

The victim was also a veteran. Olbermann tonight said that the cop is a former high school offensive linebacker. Figures.

And then there's this story that has video of a NYC cop wailing on a man's knee with a baton.

Oh, and there's this video of NYPD boys just being boys:

And on and on and on in America's melting pot.
